First to sign up for volunteering award
Well done to Georgina Francesconi who is the first East Kent member to start doing her volunteer hours for her Young Equestrian Leaders Bronze Award.
YELA is an exciting project run on behalf of Sport England and the British Equestrian Federation designed to recognise the time and effort young volunteers give to all the BEF bodies, which includes the Pony Club.
There are 3 levels Bronze, Silver and Gold, which offer a fantastic learning experience for young people aged 13 years and upwards and would be a great addition to a CV.
The branch has offered to re-imburse the application fee for each level once completed. Bronze (£14), Silver (£16) and Gold (£22).
